Tuesday, Tulane rolled out its first master’s program at the Gulf Coast campus. Those who enroll in the Masters of Liberal Arts Program will receive their first semester at half the cost. This incentive has made the program more appealing to those interested in advancing their career. Tulane Associate Dean, Karen Lucas, says they are excited to offer this opportunity for their students in order to help their skills and career.
Lucas says, “They want to learn to write a lot better, they want to learn to think creatively. A lot of our students who get it will continue on with their employment that they have now and simply know that by having a master's degree, they'll be able to get a promotion. Their employment doesn't require a specific degree.” The first class began Tuesday with concentration this semester in theater and film.
